NJ Transit: Staff Super Bowl trip was to study managing visitors

NEW YORK — NJ Transit Executive Director Jim Weinstein told NorthJersey.com that the agency had to send four staff members to the Super Bowl in New Orleans to observe the city’s handling of transportation and security at the event so it could prepare for the game coming to the Meadowlands in 2014.

The event will be the first bi-state Super Bowl that will depend heavily on public transit to move millions of tourists and locals. For the full story, click here.

    Yeah, because New Jersey doesn't handle transportation for the Meadowlands (?) now? Is there an expansion planned for the stadium that we are unaware of. Sorry but this does not pass the smell test. It stinks to high heaven!

    They send 2 cops and 2 railway personel and no Bus executives who's job it will be to actually move all those people to and from the stadium. Typical of NJT. I wonder what they actually saw besides the football game!
